H. Grimes Grocer Shop - a Memory of Chipstead.

I have very fond memories of my Grandparents, known as Harry and Nancy Grimes who owned the Grocer's shop shown - No 22. Also as a child growing up in Chipstead, just around the corner from the shops and times when it was safe for children to be out on their own.
I remember crossing the road to wander up to the woods picking bluebells and primroses, would not be allowed today! and in the winter tobogganing down the slopes.

Hello Rosemary,
Lovely to hear from someone who knows of my Grandparents.
I am sure I have heard your fathers name mentioned in my dim and distant past.
I will ask my uncle (Colin) their son if he remembers your father.

My father, Norman Taylor, worked for Mr Grimes in the early fifties.
